I love cherry everything. My favorite snowball flavor is cherry (black cherry if they have it), my favorite pie flavor is cherry, and goodness knows if there is a cherry print anything I’m gonna want it in my closet. Which was pretty much my exact reaction when I saw this sweet cherry shirtdress in Jaci Blue recently.
Hi, my name is Karen, and I am obsessed with floral prints. I’ve tried to deny it for many years now, but I must admit after looking in my closet – I have WAY too many floral print dresses. And I’m pretty sure I’m not going to stop buying them.
Spring is finally here in Louisiana! This year has been a lot different than usual because we’ve actually had a real honest-to-God spring, with cool nights and low humidity and warm days. Typically, we only get like a week of that and then we roll right into 90% humidity and temperatures in the 80s-90s. NO THANK YOU. I’m determined to enjoy this weather as much as possible.
Last week was ROUGH, y’all. I’m really trying my hardest not to buy any new clothes until after Labor Day, but it is HARD to not shop when I am stressed. I did have to buy a pair of shorts – because my office does volunteer work once a month and I like to died this month wearing jeans – but it’s definitely not the same thing. With all of the dress groups I follow on Facebook and Instagram, seeing so many gorgeous ladies wearing new styles, the temptation is REALLY REAL. But I can window shop to my heart’s content, and I have so many pieces in my closet that I should wear instead!
Last month, lots of my Instagram pals participated in All Dress April (#AllDressApril), where they wore dresses for the entire month of April. I didn’t notice it until a week in, so I didn’t want to be late to the party. However, Yvette from the Trashy Diva fan group on Facebook mentioned she’d be doing Dress A Day May (#DressADayMay), and that piqued my interest. I’ve been feeling a little funky lately (which you can probably tell via my posts), so to try and get myself out of the same-old fashion funk I’ve been in, I decided to participate. So, here’s what I wore for the first week of #DressADayMay! Monday – I was sick at home, so no dress pic. I wore a nightgown, though. Does that count? LOL. Tuesday – Dress: Lady V London Lyra in paisley print This is one of what I call my “pajama dresses”. […]
Did you ever circle what you wanted in a catalog in hopes that your mom would get it for you? My mom always used to get the JCPenney catalog before Christmas and we would circle the toys that we wanted so she would have an idea of what to get us for Christmas. I guess these days kids just send their parents their Amazon wish lists? (No joke, I do love the Amazon wishlist though. It takes all the struggle out of buying stuff for growing kids whose tastes change every year.) This is what I’m circling in my online catalog. Here’s what’s on my fashion wishlist for the end of 2016: Trashy Diva – Ashley in Wine Dots TD re-released an old fan favorite print this week, Wine Dots. This print was originally released in a silk fabric, but they brought it back in their stretch rayon, which has […]
I would visit my grandparents in Mississippi over the summers and I was always fascinated with watching Maw-Maw deal with the chickens in the backyard coop. I would stand outside the coop with her in the mornings while she got eggs. One time she asked me if I wanted fried chicken for dinner, and I said yes. I was thinking we would go into town and go get Popeye’s or something, since that was what I was used to. Nope. (Warning: vegans are gonna want to stop reading here.) She went into the backyard, got one of the non-laying hens from the coop, and…um…made quick work of it. Plucked, cut it up, fried it up with flour and seasoning, and BOOM, fried chicken. When I had my little kid freak-out (OHMYGOSH MAW-MAW!), her response to me was, “Well, where do you think fried chicken comes from?” My Maw-Maw was a […]
